Circles was composed with a tape recorder loaded with air organ, piano and fiel recordings samples. All the samples were manipulated by digital processing in a laptop to create the repetitions, textures and timbres that build the tracks.
Circles is a collection of drones and textures inspired in low speeds and turns of the magnetic tape.
